Yes, yes, I am still here.
Things are moving along.
I finished the above doll set and sent it off to our niece Brianna for her First birthday. I had almost finished it before Evelyn arrived. It just had a couple of things left to do. When it went out the door it was great to cross that off the to-do list.
Here is a glimpse of Christmas gifts in the works. I don't want to give away too much since I want the recipients to be surprised. I am enjoying dusting off my embroidering skills and thinking up things to sew for family and friends. Handmade is the way to go.
I have discovered that I can knit and embroider while nursing the little girl. I am enjoying the time for both reasons.
My babies are doing well. There are still daily challenges. I am trying to get us out of the house more and to keep Elijah occupied. He loves to color and to play with the crayons, going for walks and exploring. So I am always on the prowl for new things to do. Yesterday we got mums and mini pumpkins to start decorating. We smelled Cortland apples, picked up gourds, and splashed in a puddle. We ended up coming away with several pounds of apples...applesauce here we come.
Little Bird is growing and changing every minute. She had her one month appointment this morning. She has put on 3 lbs and grown two inches...Wow! She is not really happy unless she is sleeping on a part of your body. You set her down and in five minutes and she is in tears. Today I am ordering a sling. Hopefully, then I will be able to get more done and keep her close.
I hope to be able to come around and visit everyone soon.
Can you believe that it is October?
